    Re: Worst zanpakutou and other abilities in Bleach

    A lot of hate on ichigo's zan on the first page but think carefully for a moment.

    Ichigo's bankai is a massive compression of his reiatsu, that sword is so tough and hardy it has NEVER been even chipped in battle (except by zangetsu himself using another tensa zangetsu). No matter what punishments Ichigo had to endure fighting his opponent his bankai stayed strong. Even techniques like Hakuteiken has nothing on Ichigo's bankai because it's probably the densest concentration of reishi in the show.

    Now, Ichigo's bankai gives him a great boost in speed which allows him to keep up with experienced users in shunpo, sonido etc and most of the time even outspending them. This gives him a great advantage in CQC. Furthermore, GT is a pretty powerful technique which can heavily injure captain level opponents easily when used brutally (example would be GT sandwich on grimmjow). GT also gives him the extra power behind his slashes when he requires it. Furthermore, Ichigo's bankai last basically forever, which is greatly useful against taxing bankais (most of them). Ichigo's bankai may not have hax abilities or apocalyptic destructive power but his bankai wasn't made on either basis, as Byakuya quickly realized the true power of his bankai after experiencing it's menace. Ichigo with his bankai can take down most captains without too much difficulty.

    I actually think Hitsu's bankai is pretty useless. It has a lot of fancy abilities but none if them have severely injured his high leveled opponents. Luppi survived and Hallibel didn't show any signs of injury/fatigue after she was freed.

    If we go by that logic, doesnt that mean Komamura and Mayrui' zan is worse than useless...because their track record is even less than that of Hitsugayas.

    Not to mention Soifons who has never defeated anyone stronger than a fraccion.

    Well Mayuri has his poison even Szayel couldn't overcome, he just made the mistake of letting his bankai eat him.

    Koma managed to injure Tousen's arm pretty badly, and since tousen's base stats were presumably boosted greatly by his mask, a shinigami without mask or regen would have been in trouble.

    Soifon also did injure Barragan when the missile hit, besides her two hit kill shikai ability is pretty deadly. Against someone without respira or time dilation field soifon's Shikai is one of the deadliest zan considering her speed.

    Point is hitsu's bankai's specialty is freezing, and freezing hasn't even considerably injured anyone strong. At least you can imagine Koma or Soifon killing their opponents with their zan abilities but all freezing has done so far is to trap. Hallibel didn't show any signs of visible damage/exhaustion and that was hitsu's ultimate technique.

    Also Los lobos is pretty bad, stark's ceros were shown to be incapable of inflicting great damage against strong opponents and all the wolves he managed to summon didnt blow two vizards apart who were using a fraction of their power. Hallibel was also pretty poor(compared to ulq and nnoitra at least) but at least she was holding back(even hitsu admitted this). stark certainly wasn't.
